Singapore ATTRACTIONS See all

Singapore Chinatown

For many visitors, Singapore Chinatown is the sightseeing focus of the city, home to traditional shop houses, temples and cultural heritage.

Take a wander down the atmospheric streets, dropping into shop houses to see what’s for sale.

Admire the rooftop dragons of the Thian Hock Keng Temple, dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea, and the festively gaudy Hindu Sri Mariamman Temple, covered with colorful cows and depictions of the gods.

The uplifting and often moving history of Chinatown’s residents is displayed at the Heritage Center, and you’ll find several large shopping malls here, including the People’s Park.

Of course, Chinatown is also the place to go to for great food, especially along Smith Street, which is often closed off to form an outdoor eat street. You can also choose from a huge array of street food at the Chinatown Complex hawker center.

Practical Info

Chinatown runs off the CBD in central Singapore, bordered by New Bridge Road, Maxwell Road and Cecil Street.

Chinatown has its own MRT station on New Bridge Road. You can also walk into Chinatown from the Raffles Place MRT station.
